If a melted puddle of oils and butters can turn into something beautiful, you too, my dear, can fall apart and can still blossom into magnificence.
I think that’s what has always drawn me to soap making. The act of melting everything down into one messy pot… Selecting the perfect shades + scent blends… Creating the design to showcase the colors and design… Then 24 hours later, everything has come together into a solid mass of functional and beautiful soap. It may not be in its final true form and a little soft around the edges, but with time, a truly unique bar of soap awaits.
Now if that isn’t a poetic portrayal of life’s struggle and transformation, I challenge you to find something better.
So, yes, I make soap, but it’s so much more.
